Going Beyond Dinosaurs

These two reproductions stand across from what I showed you yesterday. Note the feathers. Very bird like. Dinosaurs and birds had a great deal in common.

The end of the age of dinosaurs saw opportunities for other species that survived the asteroid impact. A display here features a dinosaur skull, a reproduction, with little mammals scurrying about on it.

Nearby are displays of post-impact animals. Whales eventually evolved from a semi-aquatic creature to a larger one with fins instead of legs, exclusively living in the sea. 


  1. The arms on the whale are eerily human like. I'm glad they grew fins instead.

  2. Wise whales have seen so much!

  3. is constantly evolving.

  4. Hello, they are amazing creatures. Enjoy your day, wishing you a happy new week!

  5. Hard to imagine what the world was like during their era. Wow!

  6. We missed out in seeing some very interesting critters!

  7. Quite impressive, and scary, too.
    The Simpsons come to mind!

  8. I wonder where evolution is taking us now.

  9. @Maywyn: they'd have never grown that big if they hadn't gone exclusively into the water.

    @Cloudia: indeed.

    @Tom: it is.
